Abstract

A patient survived clinically disease free for 68 months following combination chemotherapy and radiotherapy for small cell carcinoma of the lung. No evidence of tumor was found at autopsy. To our knowledge, this represents the first documentation by autopsy of a greater than five year disease-free survival following treatment of small cell cancer of the lung.
